Queenstown to Glenorchy

Yesterday, my friends and I went for a lovely drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy as we were spending a day off the slopes. The drive took about an hour and it brings you through some amazing lakeside views of Lake Wakatipu. With a camera in hand I was very snap happy taking photos from the car window as we headed north.

We had a nice little picnic in Glenorchy by the lake and then proceeded further north to a place called Paradise, where there were lots of sheep and back country roads. Also,  some of the Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins: Wolverine was filmed up there. We had to turn back when we the road got a bit more suited for 4×4 vehicles as we didn’t want to do any damage to our van.

On the way back we stopped off at Bob’s Cove, a really nice secluded bay. We had a bit of a walk around there and climbed up to a look out point. By this time the sun was going down so we had to head back to the car before it was completely dark.

We hopped back in the car and headed home.
